History

2012-13: Zachary Senyshyn played for the Ottawa Senators minor midget AAA team that won the Ontario Eastern championship and played for the Senators’ in the OHL Gold Cup. He scored 18 goals with 19 assist and 8 penalty minutes in 20 regular season games and had 2 assists with 2 penalty minutes in seven playoff games. Senyshyn scored 1 goal with 2 assists in four games at that OHL Cup. Senyshyn was selected by Sault Ste. Marie in the third round (51st overall) in the 2013 OHL Priority Draft.

2013-14: Senyshyn made his OHL debut as a 16-year-old, appearing in four December games with Sault Ste. Marie, and played for the junior A Smiths Falls Bears of the Central Canada Hockey League. He had his only OHL points for the Greyhounds in his final game, scoring 1 goal with 1 assist. Senyshyn scored 22 goals in 57 regular season games for Smiths Falls, second only to leading scorer Stefano Momesso (26). He had 10 assists with 8 penalty minutes. The Bears reached the CCHL championship series, falling to Carleton Place in five games. Senyshyn scored 4 goals with 6 assists and no penalties in 16 playoff games.

2014-15: Senyshyn was one of seven Sault Ste. Marie forwards to top 20 goals as the Greyhounds finished first in the West Division and had the OHL’s top record in the regular season. Senyshyn scored 26 goals with 19 assists and was +30 with 17 penalty minutes in 66 regular season games. The Greyhounds reached the Western Conference finals, falling to Erie. Senyshyn scored 4 goals with 3 assists and was +5 with 2 penalty minutes in 14 playoff games. He was invited to the NHL Prospects Combine in June and was ranked 38th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings prior to the 2015 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Senyshyn played behind a lot of talented players with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds last year but still managed to be a dependable producer with less playing time than he would get elsewhere. Thanks to his trademark determination and strong skating, he is always tough to defend one-on-one.

Future

Senyshyn is skating for the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in 2015-16. The team's leading goal scorer, he continues to develop the supplementary areas of his game. The Bruins, with three picks in the first round, selected him earlier than expected in the 2015 NHL Draft but his progress this season suggests Senyshyn can be an NHL scorer one day.

With the Boston Bruins finishing just two points out of a playoff spot last year, Peter Chiarelli leaving Boston for the Edmonton Oilers, and long-time Bruin and fan favorite Milan Lucic being traded to the Los Angeles Kings in the offseason, many experts pegged the Bruins as a rebuilding team. Incoming General Manager Don Sweeney adamantly disagreed—despite the fact the team had three first-round picks on draft day. Read more»

It doesn’t get much better in the NHL prospect world when two draft selections taken just nine picks apart other go one-on-one. That is exactly the situation in Sault Ste. Marie this weekend, where Pavel Zacha and the Sarnia Sting travel to Sault Ste. Marie to take on Zach Senyshyn and the Greyhounds. Read more»

Perhaps no franchise epitomizes the “What have you done for me lately?” nature of the National Hockey League more so than the Boston Bruins. Boston reached the NHL finals twice in a three-year span, winning a Stanley Cup Championship in 2010-11 and just two seasons ago won 54 games—the most since the Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito days in 1971-72.
